Egg Station by Alek M. (Heifer Field Trip)

During the Heifer field trip we took some time to look at a store bought egg and an Overlook Farm egg (laid right there by a chicken) crack them, and compare the differences. The major differences between the Overlook egg and the store bought egg is that the Overlook egg white is more see-through than the store bought one. In the yolk of the Overlook egg there was this white spot call the embryos which means the egg is still able to produce a chick. The egg yolk from Overlook is also darker. A fun fact about eggs is that you can tell what color the eggshell will be by looking at the chicken’s ears. The Overlook eggs were white and blue, while the store bought one was just plain brown.
